AEW’s Tony Khan: Wrestling’s real crown is Northeast US, ‘some BS in Saudi Arabia not overseas’


As AEW chief Tony Khan makes the media rounds this week to help promote Wednesday’s Grand Slam in Queens, New York, he took a shot at WWE in an interview while capturing America’s Northeast region.

Speaking to News 12 (seen below), Khan was responding to a question about the conduct of New York state shows this month in addition to upcoming shows in Philadelphia and Boston, when said the following:

“We’re running a lot of great shows around the Northeast. It’s a lot of great wrestling markets in one geographic area. I’ll say it: (It’s) the crown jewel of wrestling markets – the real crown jewel of wrestling markets, overseas in Saudi Arabia Not some BS. The real crown jewel – New York City – is where you want to be.”

WWE, of course, runs twice a year in Saudi Arabia as part of a partnership with its government which is a financial windfall for WWE. His next show is scheduled for early November.

Khan is driving Arthur Ashe Stadium for the second year in a row for Wednesday’s double dynamite/Stampede incident.
